Help! We're HAUNTED!

Halloween is right around the corner and we've found ourselves SPOOKED--that is, the Library is filled with supernatural selections. We're desperate for friends and neighbors to stop by and bust some ghosts, slay some vampires, and fight evil by picking up some scary stories this week.

Here's what's haunting our hallowed halls....

Flesh-eating zombies stalking the comics shelf!

Seen the new hit Sleepy Hollow TV series? Get the scoop on the original story!

Fun children's stories and picture books, including one by local author and illustrator Sam Hiti!

Frightening fables for young readers!

Grown-up supernatural tales of suspense!

RECOMMENDED: Another witching story that's back in the library is A Discovery of Witches, which comes highly recommended from Emily!

The original Frankenstein: he's no lumbering oaf, but a monster obsessed with revenge!

...and the baddest for last: DRACULA! A den of vampires...and their slayers: our finest president and a valley girl! 

Be sure to stop by soon before we're overtaken by ghastly ghouls!

Love and Marriage

Early October is a special time for the Librarian of Justice and is the time of year when we celebrate our wedding anniversary. We remember that beautiful fall day...surrounded by family and friends...happily proclaiming our love for and commitment to one another. All very sappy and romantic and ridiculous...and we love it! :)

So to celebrate our special day, the library is now stocked with books focused on relationships, love and marriage. Relationships between witches and vampires...relationships that had to be hidden because of the time and context in which they existed..."relationships" that were arranged and undesired...relationships that were steamy and fleeting...interracial relationships...fairy tale relationships. We've got it all! Right here in our Little Free Library.

So stop by, pick out a book, and enjoy marveling at shapes and sizes in which relationships exist.

Happy reading, Readers!
